Springfield Cinema: Remodel Construction To Start Next Week
SPRINGFIELD TENNESSEE: (Smokey Barn News) – After a long wait and several plan changes, Springfield Cinema will begin the remodel of the exterior of the theater next Monday the 21st of September. Carmike officials told Smokey Barn News today that they will be closed for at least a week during construction.
The biggest change to the front of the theater will be the awning/canopy and lateral marquee, they will be completely removed and there are no plans to replace them. The new marquee will be red recessed lettering perpendicular to its old location going down the front of the building vertically above the entrance.
There will be four lights pointing at the CINEMA sign, two going up and two going down creating a cinema effect, according to Carmike officials. The panels left and right of the marquee will be white.
With the marquee gone, upcoming and current movies will be displayed to the left of the entrance in two glass windows.
The biggest change at ground level will be the replacement of the small tiles that wrap the entrance with one foot square black tiles. For more details on the work being done next week see the plans diagram below.
As far as the inside, Carmike officials said that after the outside is complete they will turn their attention to improving the inside of the theater.
The theater is probably the largest draw for people into the historic downtown area followed by court related activities and merchant businesses on Main Street.
This is something that Springfield residents have wanted for many years, it should be beautiful when complete and may even be good for business on Main St.
